I just joined the group. I was in great health, running 3-6 miles daily for 50 years. In 2009, my bloodwork showed my Cholesterol in the low 200's. I was put on statins at that time and stayed on them till a year ago when I was told by a neuropathy clinic since my Cholesterol was in the 170's to quit taking them because they were destroying my nerves in my legs. I mentioned to my PCP the end of 2011 that my feet were beginning to feel numb but he had no response. I went to a stem cell seminar that sounded convincing but I have reservations about spending good money after claims that they will heal my neuropathy. I have very little balance and don't have any feelings from the hips down. Has anyone tried stem cell therapy or anything else that has helped?? Thanks.
